Best View

We lived in Salt Lake City for 6 years in the 90's, and I never tired of the mountain views.  
Last week, we spent several days there.  Steve, our daughter, and our new granddaughter pose in front of the Wasatch Mountains that loom to the east of the city.  They're trying out the baby's jogging stroller in a local park.  My daughter's two dogs enjoyed going along.
The Oquirrh Range runs along the west side of the valley. 
Of course, the mountains aren't the only attraction.  The best view in the Salt Lake valley, to my totally unbiased eyes, is of our little girls.

    As you know, I enjoy SL very much, but you definitely have an edge with the Girls living there! Who could even look at the mountains with that cute baby around?

  14. Hi Janie, The mountains in your homeland are magnificent. Like in Switzerland where I have been born.

  16. Janie, the mountains are STUNNING but your girls are even more so. Your granddaughter looks like a doll and the pink outfit is sooo cute. Thanks for your comment on my blog yesterday. Yes, here in Khartoum there are many "deserted" buildings which have people living in flats ont the second floor and then businesses on the ground or first floor. I saw businessmen coming out of flats above and going to work but I think here there is only one business and that is Ona's Beauty Centre. (((Hugs))) Jo
